Catalogue Note

The 2-Eight wristwatch, presented at Baselworld 2011 was of particular significance to Kari Voutilainen as it marked the first release of his new in-house movement that was entirely conceived, assembled and finished at his atelier in Môtiers, Switzerland. The glazed back show cases the high grade movement with direct impulse double wheel escapement, and large balance. 


Although he has continued his pared back approach to the  design of this watch with the crisp engine turned chapter and oversized hands, rather more unusually for this independent maker, Voutilainen has produced this example with a decorative mother of pearl centre. Only produced in a total of 10 examples in the World, this would be an extremely rare addition to any collection.
